Universal Studios Hollywood Unleashes Grinchmas Pet Adoption Event

Pin It

Hoping to land a starring role in the life of a loving pet parent, California canines from L.A. area shelters will play a part in Universal Studios Hollywood’s annual Grinchmas celebration.

For the third consecutive year, families can find a new furry friend during Max to the Rescue: Have a Heart Adoption Fair, which will take place on December 14th and 15th.

Even if a pet adoption isn’t in your immediate future, during the 19-day Wholiday event you can have your photo taken with Grinch and his faithful Fido, Max; play in real snow; relive the magic of the Christmas classic with a close up look at the original How the Grinch Stole Christmas movie sets; watch a nightly lighting of a 60-foot tall “Grinchmas” tree, and listen to readings of the Dr. Seuss tale by such stars as Nia Vardalos from the romantic comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding; The Biggest Loser coach Jillian Michaels; Glee‘s Dot Marie Jones; Covert Affairs cast member Chris Gorham; Lauren Bowles from the HBO series True Blood; Raphael Sbarge from the ABC hit Once Upon a Time, and many more!

When: The Grinchmas celebration launches on December 8th and 9th, then takes place daily from December 15th until the end of the year. The Max to the Rescue: Have a Heart Adoption Fair will be held on December 14th and 15th from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Where: Universal Studios Hollywood in Universal City, California
